Ask Mongo
Dear Mongo: I am the son of one of the victims from Saturday's boating tragedy. Is there any saved footage from that morning that saw anything? Thank you for any help and your time.
Brandon S

Mongo: Brandon, sorry about your tragic loss. I haven't seen or heard of any video footage or photos. I'll post your email on my website, and perhaps someone has something to share. I will forward anything I receive directly to you. Glad to help out any way I can.

joke of the day
A man goes into a bar with a giraffe, they both get a couple of rounds in.
When they get up to leave they're extremely drunk and the giraffe passes out and falls over.
The man opens the door, about to leave by himself, when the bartender stops him suddenly and says, "Hey! You can't leave that lyin' there!"
The man turns around and slurs, "Don't be silly, that's not a lion, that's a giraffe!"

ask the Love Goddess
Love Goddess
Dear Love Goddess: I'm a 25 year old guy going out on a first date tomorrow. Any tips?

Love Goddess: Here's my nine tips for a guy on his first date: You plan the date. Pay for it. Be confident, she wants to be there. Dress to impress - especially your shoes. Be on time. Be attentive & ask great questions. Use compliments appropriately, avoid any sexual comments - "beautiful” is better than “smokin". Open the door for her. Follow up; if you had a great time, let her know the next day.
